We had an Oracle process accidentally fill up one of the partitions in our Red Hat AS4 server with a single, large file. No, this is not the / partition. It is an ext3 data partition that we created for part of the Oracle database that we have on this server. In Oracle, I moved this dat to another partition, then I dropped the tablespace (the file that the O/S sees) that was on this partition and I did a "umount -l" and then remounted it, but an "ls -lf" command still shows this partition as 100% full, even though it doesn't show the large file anymore. A "du -x" command correctly shows it as empty. Can I convince Linux (and/or the ext3 file system on this partition) that this partition really isn't 100% full anymore (short of a reboot)? I won't have a scheduled opportunity for a server reboot until the weekend of August 8.
